Interim Study on Electric Generation Fails to Hold Public Hearings

Public power affects all Nebraskans. An interim study (LR355) introduced by Natural Resources Committee chair, Sen. Bruce Bostelman, “to examine and review Chapter 70 of the Nebraska statutes relating to power districts and corporations” appears to have never had a public meeting. 

“If significant changes have been proposed, these must be revealed in a timely manner so that the ‘second house’ — the public which so many senators cite regularly — can also be informed,” wrote longtime longtime League of Women Voters of Nebraska member Sherry Miller in an opinion column published in the Dec. 22, 2022, Lincoln Journal Star. 

The new session of the Unicameral began on Jan. 4, 2023.
